With food shortages coming, it’s a smart move to order organic, cooked, freeze-dried chicken for long-term storage from Prepper Organics.
Alain Jocard, Pool via AP Back at the end of January 2020, I wrote “ The Great Pestilence Panic of 2020 ,” PJ Media’s first article on the newly identified Wuhan Coronavirus (2019-nCoV), or what we now know as SARS-CoV-19, COVID-1, or just Covid.
Much has happened since then, with massive (and ineffective) lockdowns, mask mandates, and excessive estimates of impending mortality — I’m sure you all remember. Now we have a new pestilence panic over an outbreak of monkeypox. So what are the facts about monkeypox? This is monkeypox
This guy, Silver Steele, has recorded the whole course of his own monkeypox case, which lasted pretty much the average time.
Looks pretty unpleasant, doesn’t it? My understanding is that it is very unpleasant. If you take nothing else away from this article, take this advice: don’t rub anything against someone with lesions like this until they feel better. So what is monkeypox?
Monkeypox is a virus (family Poxviridae ) in the genus orthopoxvirus . Now, fair warning: I’m going to abuse the terminology to the extent of calling the genus a “family” because it’s a common-language way to refer to a collection of close relatives, even if Linnaeus wouldn’t approve.
Monkeypox is a zoonotic virus — humans get it from an animal reservoir. You might have guessed that from the name, but surprisingly monkeys are probably not its primary animal host; that’s probably small mammals like African dormice.
Monkeypox is related to a number of other viruses: cowpox, horsepox, vaccinia, and varicella. Vaccinia is the virus from which the smallpox vaccine is made. Varicella is smallpox.
This family of viruses has an interesting — and very convenient — property: if you’re immune to any of these viruses, you’re going to be more or less immune to all of them. We need to be […]
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
